Scania bus in biodiesel project using locally-sourced waste

Sweden / Côte d’Ivoire – A pilot bus running on biodiesel from waste was launched in the capital city of the Ivory Coast in November, as part of a longstanding collaboration between Scania AB of Södertälje, Sweden and local public and private partners. 

The pilot vehicle is a Marcopolo-bodied bus with a Scania chassis capable of running on biodiesel from locally-sourced waste, such as animal manure and other agricultural waste. Scania claims that running buses in the capital city Abidjan on biodiesel instead of fossil-derived diesel can reduce carbon emissions by up to 80%.
